Mother’s Day Quiz: What’s Your Parenting Style?

April 29, 2015

parenting style quizMost parents don’t use the same parenting style to raise their children. Different strokes, after all. You may have developed your parenting style from a combination of sources: information you’ve read or heard, advice you’ve received from relatives and other parents, lessons you were taught while growing up, and your parental instinct.

Which of four basic kinds of parenting style are you using? Take our quiz to find out:


Your child rips up a playmate’s drawing. What’s your reaction?

Your child brings home a bad report card. What do you do?

Your teenager wants to go to a rock concert. How do you respond?

Your child didn’t do the chores that he or she was supposed to do. What happens?

Your child makes the winning shot in a basketball game. What do you do?

Your son wants a “Superman” costume. How do you handle it?

Your daughter did not do well in her ballet recital. In the car on the way home, what do you do?
